The choreography combines figure skating elements with creativity and originality.
The choreographer distributes predefined elements such as steps, jumps, spins and transitions uniformly on the ice surface, using the entire space. The elements are stylishly and harmoniously connected with each other under consideration of different tempos. The choreographer pays attention to the quality of the movements, the body and the balance. The selected music is supposed to be interpreted effortlessly and in harmony with the rhythm and mood of the music.
